maybe Enahs can explain to me how to config the drivers to force AA??!??
Right click on your desktop, select NVIDIA analog display (if you are using CRT monitor) or NVIDIA digital display (if you are using LCD). You will only have one option, unless you are running dual screen.
On that new display, on the left floating tab hit “Performance and Quality”
Then in settings click Antialiasing settings, uncheck “Application-Controlled” and then select it.
Rinse and repeat for anisotropic filtering.
There is also a “image settings” there with a slide bar with 4 options for quality to performance.
While you are at it hit the “show advanced” button. You can then turn on Trilinear and anisotropic optimization. I recommend them, since the different is SO little but you get a decent performance boost.
Note: At the image settings the highest quality and the next to highest are the exact same except the highest forced trilinear and anisotropic optimizations off.
This method is sometimes better, because as you will see in the AA and AF sidebars, example: you get some 2x and 2xQ, 2xQ looks more like 4x than 2x but closer to the 2x speed hit. It would best be called 3x but that is not technically accurate, ect.
Also, the Question mark button near the close button at the top right is damn good. Just click it and then click it on anything and you will get LOTS of information usually. Use it and have fun tweaking and seeing HL2 with AA and AF actually on!
Good enough for ya?
That’s a deep kiss too, like the Europeans. You know the French they have to unhinge their jaw to show love.
I am free of all prejudice. I hate everyone equally.
